Human Genetic Variation and Disease Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held during Jun 09 - 10, 2018 at University of New England - Biddeford Campus, Biddeford, Maine, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is students, postdoctoral fellows and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present cutting-edge research at the intersection of genomics, molecular biology, computational biology, and medicine. Course Description: The first ever GRS on Human Genetic Variation and Disease will focus on emerging ideas on the collection, generation, interpretation and applicability of large-scale genetic data sets in the context of human disease and medicine. Particularly, the meeting will emphasize the exciting new questions and resources that the next generation of scientists, engineers and analysts has inherited in this rapidly changing and increasingly interdisciplinary area of research. The GRS will provide junior scientists a venue to discuss research, and exchange ideas with peers and established scientists from a variety of disciplines. The congenial atmosphere of the GRS will also provide ample opportunities for participants to interact and build collaborations with scientists at these different levels. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Human Genetic Variation and Disease Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held during Jun 10 - 15, 2018 at University of New England - Biddeford Campus, Biddeford, Maine, United States of America. Course Description: Modern sequencing technologies now enable detailed measurements of germline and somatic alterations, many of which underly human disease. An enormous amount of human genetic data has been collected, and understanding the breadth and complexity of human variation presents one of the greatest scientific challenges of our time. In particular, interpretation of genetic variation and its relevance to disease is critical for the success of precision medicine programs. Addressing this challenge will require that researchers and clinicians from many diverse disciplines work together. Our scientific program includes talks from systems biologists, genomic scientists, computer scientists, molecular biologists, medical geneticists, population geneticists, data scientists, oncologists, biophysicists, and experts in health informatics. We will focus on how we can combine our expertise to understand the complex nature of the association between human genetic variation and disease and promote translation of that knowledge into clinical practice. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
